Steering wheel will fine untill the power steering oil is full, so till the time you are not getting it fixed , keep a check on power steering oil contain. Once the oil container gets low you will find it hard to steer the wheel.

Truck doesnt want to stop when I have the steering whell canked all the way?


there must be a vacuum leak in your brake master. try pumping the brake pedal several times every time you make a full turn of steering wheel. if this fixes your braking problem, then replace CHECK VALVE hose in your brake master.

My 1996 XE Pickup Nissan the horn blows by itself when i turn to the left. How can I disconnect the horn


Well I don't recommend disconnecting seeings how the horns is a safety item. It is more than likely the clock spring in the steering wheel that is broken and when you turn to the left it makes contact thus allowing the horn to go off. I recommend fixing the problem. You might want to check out your local laws regarding non working safety items on your vehicle, you could actually set yourself up for other issues if you are to get into an accident and certain safety devices are not working.

Minn Kota riptide ST green ready light will not turn on. It started flickering and will not turn on now. Pressed the battery test button and it shows that the batteries are fully charged. HELP!!!


Does the unit work without the auto pilot? Sounds like the auto pilot or the reciever is not functioning correctly.
Check and make sure the unit is grounded properly, you may need to run a test ground wire from the battery to the motor istelf to check this.
This is simple to do and takes 15 minutes. Starting in the battery compartment feed cable into the split-loom and continue feeding until reaching the control panel. Pull an extra 5 foot of cable and open dry hatch in rear by motor feed cable around and out to motor connections., Good time to check any circuit breakers
Try cycling the auto pilot though the modes.
there are 3 modes
to cycle through each mode
hold down the + and - key for 2 seconds
this cycles you to the next mode. Last but not least, try turning the unit on and spinning the prop by hand to see if it takes off, the motor migt be bound up slightly or have a bad spot on the brushes.

Minn kota riptide 55 bow mount with foot control and auto pilot. problem is prop doesn't seem to spin as fast so top speed is about half to two thirds of what it was when new. unit is about 5yrs old.just...


Sounds as if the motor has either bearings going bad and/or water has gotten in the housing washed the lubricants out. Motors do wear out eventually. I'm not sure if the brushes are replacible. Have you checked for any constrictions like fishing line? And also the contacts on the controller could have minor corrosion meaning take it apart if possible and clean with steel wool or a dremel.

Locked up steering wheel


I think your steering wheel may have been under tension when you parked it. It happens to everyone. Try turning the wheel the direction that it will move and turn the key with foot on brake to disengage the locking mechanism. If this doesn't work, reply back to this post and I'll help you further...MK
